Answered the way i did as the potmetal lower bowl is different, as well is the stamped steel upper bowl. if your really good craftsman, both can be converted to FS versions, it is just time consuming.
Since no longer a column shift auto, you can disassemble the column, remove the lower shifter tube, then carefully remove "leg" with a cutoff wheel. Once rough cut and ground, I've chuckedk the lower tube in the lathe and carefully machined down the remaining remenents of the leg on the tube end, recreating a factory lower FS lower tube (without the shifter "leg"). The '67 and '68 Dualgate shifters used a reverse light switch in the shifter, so reverse light activation is taken care of.. The correct shifter cable is mounted to the correct Turbo 400 pan mounted bracket, so no need for the shifter "leg", upper rod, swivel, and lower rod, like used in any column shift '67 or '68, or on any '69+ Pontiac A body setup.
